It was written by John Ostrander, illustrated by Luke Ross, and published on October 19, 2005 by Dark Horse Comics. The issue features the story "Loyalties," which is set approximately two weeks after Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.
The new Emperor lays out his plans for his Empire, and those who have other ideas are dealt a swift lesson by Vader's blade. But one Captain wants nothing to do with the new government, and plans his defection. But what do you do when the Dark Lord of the Sith is determined to stop you?
This issue marks Vader's first appearance in Star Wars continuity since his "introduction" in Revenge of the Sith! And, long-time readers of Republic will see a plot come full circle in a most unexpected manner!
Republic 78: Loyalties is set in the Rise of the Empire era, and the issue's front matter specifies that the story takes place in 19 BBY, "approximately two weeks after the events in Revenge of the Sith."
